Sometimes, when a marriage has come to an end, not everybody realizes it. This can be incredibly frustrating when you realize there is no need to stay married any longer, but your spouse refuses to.

This is especially true when you are working, as your employer, coworkers, and other people you interact with on a daily basis are likely aware you are getting a divorce. Even if your divorce is kept secret, it can be incredibly difficult to endure your traditional workday feeling the emotional and financial burden of what you are experiencing.
We all know breaking up is hard to do, and it is even harder when the breakup involves dissolving a marriage that you believed was meant to last forever.
